I just got my new 2TB/USB3 My Passport today. I was backing up stuff and everytime it never stays connected long enough to complete my transfer. I am using a Win 7 (64bit) system and i have installed all the drivers and utilities from the website. I even turn off the power management from the Windows Device Manager and yet it still doesn’t work. I tried with 3 Win 7 machines on their USB 3 ports and still no go. SO the last thing i tried was just simply plug it into a USB 2 port and all my transfers went smoothly without any interruptions.
Anyone can shed a little light on this matter? Is it a WIn 7 issue? A USB3 issue? hardware issue?
( i have already tried 2 different USB 3 cables on different machines and still unsuccessful file transfers)
